Family Camp

New in 2017, Summer Meltdown is organizing a special camp for families with kids! This campground is shady, tent-only camping on A street near the Kids Zone, and space is limited. Register for Family Camp so we can rope off enough space for you and your little ones! Registration is not a guarantee of a space in Family Camp – it tells us how much space is requested.
Registration is free – but keep in mind that everyone must have a Meltdown Pass, or be young enough not to need one.

Register for Family Camp!

The Kids Zone

Come Explore the Magical Forest At Meltdown’s 2017 Kids Zone!

“Children need the freedom and the time to play. Play is not a luxury. It’s a necessity.”

Meltdown’s Kids Zone is the place to play, create, share ideas and make new friends. Here you’ll find hula-hoops, play-dough, bubbles, face-painting, dress-up, derby car races, workshops, jewelry making, snow cones, create gifts and much, much more.

This year we’ll explore together with a ✨Magic✨ theme! Come make a wand, a derby car, wings, a fairy home, participate in group art, and design your own costume to dance in! Bring a song, a story, a dance, a special talent. Show it off and teach a friend. We are here to celebrate diversity, talent, beauty, and to discover who we are and what we can do together!

The Kids Zone is open:
12pm-6pm on Thursday
10am-6pm on Friday and Saturday
10am-5:30pm Sunday

Parental supervision is required. The Kids Zone is not equipped to provide and is not responsible for child care.
